Holiday Greetings from Honeydew

Hi, everybody!  I have a fun card to share today!  One of the joys of moving was finding all kinds of hidden treasures I'd forgotten about!  This card is one of them! When I became unemployed in 2012, long before I discovered blogging or digital stamps, I made a bunch of cards featuring my cats - this was to keep me from going crazy LOL!  The cards have been tucked away since then and now I'm going to share them - gradually - I think there's about a dozen of them so I'll pace myself with the sharing!

This card features my big boy - Honeydew!  He weighs about 20 lb!  In this card he is wishing you Holiday Greetings!

I tore the patterned paper to create a snowy landscape.  The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado and it was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.  The foam snowflakes and the patterned paper are from the dollar store.  Oh, this card just makes me smile!  I hope it makes you smile too!

Honeydew really IS a big boy weighing in at 20 pounds!!! Just as pretty as can be too. Love the way he's sitting among those pretty foam snowflakes! They give the card so much dimension! Give Honeydew a big hug from Texas.
